EPC

What is an EPC?

The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) provides a standardised energy rating for a non-commercial property or building. Performance is rated (A to G) in terms of its Energy Efficiency. This rating is achieved by calculating the energy use per square metre of floor area and its environmental impact based on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The higher the rating the more energy efficient the property is and the lower the fuel bills will be.

The ratings are represented graphically on a scale from A to G, where A stands for the most efficient energy performance and G stands for the least efficient energy performance. Band A properties will have the lowest fuel bills.

The Environmental Impact rating is a measure of a property’s impact on the environment in terms of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The higher the rating the less the impact it has on the environment.

Do I need an EPC?

If you are planning to build, sell or rent out a property, an EPC is a mandatory requirement.

The information secured as part of an EPC will help any property owner to adopt strategies which will lead to reduced energy consumption and lower energy bills.

Did You Know?

If you are considering installing a Solar energy system and you want to ensure you maximise your benefits from the government’s incentives, you will need to demonstrate that your property achieves an EPC rating of D or better before the system is installed. 

Who can produce an EPC?

Only Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs), Commercial Energy Assessors (NDEAs, Non-Domestic) can legally produce an EPC.

Treadlighter’s Assessors are all fully qualified, insured and accredited.

How can I get an EPC?

Treadlighter only provide EPCs to homeowners as part of an installation package and where legislation demands that certain standards of energy efficiency are required to be proven in order for the property to qualify for government grants and subsidies e.g The Feed-in-Tariff.

To reassure you, we produce a draft EPC as part of our initial site survey, so you will have an accurate assessment from the word go. It’s all part of the service.
